The Shoe Zoo was established in 2006 by husband and wife team, Peter and Claire.
It was inspired by the arrival of their first child and the experience of trying to buy shoes for her. Realising that there was a real need for a good children's shoe shop in Torquay to provide the kind of choice and child friendly service that was lacking, The Shoe Zoo was born!
In June 2014 The Shoe Zoo outgrew its original premises in Chelston and moved to a purpose built building in St. Marychurch.
This enabled an even bigger range of quality children's shoes to be stocked, an expansion to the dancewear and dance shoe department and even a sandwich and coffee bar to be incorporated! Although The Shoe Zoo has grown in size, its small shop ethos remains.
All of our customers receive a personal and friendly service. We look forward to welcoming you soon!
